Lots of 3's. Small map with a lot of economic challenge. Patience is your best ally as you have almost no farm space and very little other available resources. I enjoyed the map, but haven't had any other test players available. Constructive feedback is always welcome. ~Lady Eranthe~
Allow some more resources. Who gets a good castle with one quarry and a single iron mine? An expert would probably have trouble on this map. The difficulty should be "hard".

This was a short and fun map! I suggest everyone play it. Winning is easy and doesn't take long. Since only 11 stone are needed to complete the castle (a small gatehouse and a single stone coloum), you are quickly making money by selling stone, wood, and excess flour and ale.
With all that extra gold, I purchased many of the win requirements ouright and waited until after everything else was met before building the last hovel and assigning workers to the 8 chapels I had already pre-built.

Fun is very clearly the key for this map, for its author and for us players. You can sit and watch:
The lovely oasis with an initial circle of all tree types. The serpentines from the keep and to the iron. There's plenty of farm land, so many working people fit into the small space.
Though two signposts limit the building area, I found it entertaining that one is just able to wall in the oasis. For fun.
